Phenomics is a new branch of science developed in recent years, which mainly study the cell phenotypes in different environments at systems level. Phenomics is widely used in the genotype-phenotype mapping, the genetic basis research of complex trait diseases, crop genetic improvement. Meanwhile, phenomics research faces huge challenges. Extensive features of genomic data directly spawned a new scientific research based on the genome sequences. This paper introduces the scope of phenomics in simple terms. It summarizes the application of phenomics in the genotype-phenotype mapping, the genetic basis research of complex trait diseases, crop genetic improvement, and the challenges of phenomics research. Meanwhile, it discusses the application of bioinformatics in phenomics, and the future and perspective of phenomics.

The immense increase in the generation of genomic scale data poses an unmet analytical challenge, due to a lack of established methodology with the required flexibility and power. We propose a first principled approach to statistical analysis of sequence-level genomic information. We provide a growing collection of generic biological investigations that query pairwise relations between tracks, represented as mathematical objects, along the genome. The Genomic HyperBrowser implements the approach...

SNPs discovered by genome-wide association studies (GWASs) account for only a small fraction of the genetic variation of complex traits in human populations. Where is the remaining heritability? We estimated the proportion of variance for human height explained by 294,831 SNPs genotyped on 3,925 unrelated individuals using a linear model analysis, and validated the estimation method with simulations based on the observed genotype data. We show that 45% of variance can be explained by considering...

Phenomics is a systematic study of phenotypes on a genomewide scale that is expected to unravel, as of yet, unsuspected functional roles of the genome. It remains to be determined how to optimally approach and analyze the available phenomics databases to spearhead innovation in neuropsychiatry. By serendipitously connecting two unrelated phenotypes of increased blood levels of the adipokine leptin, a molecule that regulates appetite, in 5-lipoxygenase- (5-LOX) deficient mice and patients with a ...

We propose statistical methods for comparing phenomics data generated by the Biolog Phenotype Microarray (PM) platform for high-throughput phenotyping. Instead of the routinely used visual inspection of data with no sound inferential basis, we develop two approaches. The first approach is based on quantifying the distance between mean or median curves from two treatments and then applying a permutation test; we also consider a permutation test applied to areas under mean curves. The second appro...

The emergence of high-throughput technologies for measuring biological systems has introduced problems for data interpretation that must be addressed for proper inference. First, analysis techniques need to be matched to the biological system, reflecting in their mathematical structure the underlying behavior being studied. When this is not done, mathematical techniques will generate answers, but the values and reliability estimates may not accurately reflect the biology. Second, analysis approa...

There is now strong evidence that yield potential in rice (Oryza sativa L.) is becoming limited by ‘source’ capacity, i.e. photosynthetic capacity or efficiency, and hence the ability to fill the large number of grain ‘sinks’ produced in modern varieties. One solution to this problem is to introduce a more efficient, higher capacity photosynthetic mechanism to rice, the C4 pathway. A major challenge is identifying and engineering the genes necessary to install C4 photosynthesis in rice. Recently...

Phenomics is an emerging transdiscipline dedicated to the systematic study of phenotypes on a genome-wide scale. New methods for high-throughput genotyping have changed the priority for biomedical research to phenotyping, but the human phenome is vast and its dimensionality remains unknown. Phenomics research strategies capable of linking genetic variation to public health concerns need to prioritize development of mechanistic frameworks that relate neural systems functioning to human behavior. ...

Borrowing imaging techniques from medicine, phenomics offers plant scientists new windows into the inner workings of living plants: infrared cameras to scan temperature profiles, spectroscopes to measure photosynthetic rates, lidar to gauge growth rates, and MRI to reveal root physiology. Institutes worldwide are racing to build facilities with instrument arrays that can scan thousands of plants a day in an approach to science akin to high-throughput DNA sequencing. The Australian Plant Phenomic...
